, whether it's my ancestors from ireland and germany, many generations ago or my in-laws and brother's side of the family a generation ago from mexico. in every case, the people who by and large have come to america have come with a dream of living a better life than their children. getting an education, working hard. in many cases starting up their businesses and living the american dream and we ought to find a way to make that more possible. now, that also means we live in a society of rules and so we need to abide by the laws that i think there are practical ways to abide by those lawses. and any ethnic where they come from, should live the american dreams and what it stands for. >> greta: what do you do about those illegally here in this country? have you thought about that? that's one of the thornier issues. >> well, clearly there's got to be a well thought-out process in doing this, a balance between respect for the law and all the talk about securing the border, which is important, is that we've got a mess when it comes to the federal agency that controls immigration. we've got peopl

and uphold our values through strength of arms and rule of law. we will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully, not because we are naive about the dangers we face, but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear. america will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe. and weapon will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage crisis abroad. for no one has a greater stake in a peaceful world. >> i think that's the most important thing he said today because i think it's about war and peace. i think he wants peace with iran, somehow. and i think picking hagel and john kerry are part of that today. it will be interesting to look at the traffic tomorrow out of teheran and whether they respond to this or not. the president said it was time now for his generation to keep up the work on behalf of all americans and immigrants. this is very liberal. let's listen. >> authority is not complete until our wives, our mothers and daughters are can earn a living equal to our efforts. our journey is not compl

under the law. he is talking about doma, the supreme court argument to come. he is surrounded by the supreme court right this. and he talked about stonewall. talking about stonewall in an inaugural address, i was really profoundly moved by that. this is not just saying okay, these people helped elect me. this is saying this is a commitment. we're expanding the vision of dr. martin luther king jr. and we're talking about equal rights for all of us. he is talking about seneca falls. he is talking about women's rights and equal pay. and this was a very forward-looking, progressive, inclusive speech. >> i will say as a gay person that i am used to gay people being name checked in speeches, put in a list of demographic groups that you want to shout out to recognize that we exist, which is always nice. but to have the president articulate why the fight, the continuing struggle, the not at all settled struggle for equal rights is an american project, and to have that delivered from the inaugural lectern was i think -- felt personally was moving to me personally. but i also felt like

journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. >> in many ways, this speech was progressives. this is what we have been waiting for to hear for four years. the president is older now, and certainly wiser to the position about how washington works. but at least for today he will not let trivial politics derail the progressive course that this country is on. president obama looked out to the crowd on the national mall today and saw the full scope of america, young and old, rich and poor, black, white, hispanic, asian. he recognized the moment. he captured it. the mission he is charged with today is perhaps greater than his mission of four years ago. in 2009, he was of course there to lead us out of this economic tragedy that we were living in. in 2013, he needs to lead this country and make it the country that we all want to achieve. >> you and i as citizens had the power to set this country'

, the constitution allows you to have a gun, and i don't have a problem if you have a gun, but the federal laws say you can't have a gun if you're a criminal, a substance abuse person, psychiatric problems or a minor. and then congress doesn't vote money to fund enforcement, and it's too easy to avoid all the background checks. the laws don't apply to gun shows and to internet sales, which is 40% of the guns. and the guns are getting into the hands of the wrong people. if you are responsible and you're an adult and you don't have a criminal record, nothing wrong with you having a gun. for protection for yourself or hunting or whatever. target practice, whatever you want to do. but there's certainly a whole bunch of people who should not get guns. we could stop it. we just don't seem to have the courage to do it. >> jimmy: what can we do? should we write -- [ applause ] >> you can -- around this country, call your congressman and your senator. you can get their numbers in the phone book or in new york from 311. and you say -- >> jimmy: the phone book.

. the progressive era new deal and great society laws were enacted when america was still a young and growing nation. they were enacted in a nation that was vibrant, raw, underinstitutionalized and needing taming. reinvigorating a mature nation means giving government to give people the tools to compete but then opening up a wide field so they do so ruak cowsly creatively. it means spending more here but de regulating more there. it means facing the fact we do have to choose between current benefits to seniors and investments in our future, and that to pretend we don't face that choice as obama did is effectively to sacrifice the future to the past. >> jonathan, first, what do you think of this speech and secondly, what do you think of david's column? >> i thought the president's speech was terrific, a progressive vision for the country. the guy won twice and ran on all the things he talked about yesterday, inclusion, balanced approach to the nation's problems. when it comes to david brooks' column, as mika was reading, i was thinking, how is that different from what the president actually said? i m
